The PS2 is still holding strong. I'm surprised the DS tops the list though.

Yeah, I wasn't expecting that either. I wonder if it was a price issue?

My thoughts:

  • DS, PS2, Wii, and 360 dominated this Christmas. I'm surprised by how well the PSP's doing, too
  • Gears is selling great, but damn, I never though GH2 would sell that well. It's an even bigger hit than I thought it was
  • Only nintendo can put out one game on two systems, have no one criticize them and have it sell hundreds of thousands of copies. Maybe next year, they can put out an original game! That'd be cool, no?
